Over the past 20 years the name of Arne Naess has become increasingly well-known in the worldwide environmental movement. His distinction between shallow and deep trends in environmental issues has spawned the deep ecology movement in the USA. This book outlines the main aspects of his thought.
'This long awaited work is an updated and thoroughly revised translation of Okologi, Samfunn og Livsstil in Norwegian. Naess is the acknowledged founder of 'deep ecology' and a respected authority in semantics, the philosophy of science and the thinking of Spinoza and Ghandi. This book is both a philosophical primer and a handbook on strategy and tactics for thoughtful environmentalists.' Trends in Ecology and Evolution 'I would add Naess' book to that very short list of works in environmental philosophy that speak to us from the depths of a life well and thoughtfully lived, a life which has engendered wisdom and with it care, responsiveness, and a sense of responsibility to the earth.' Jim Cheney '... this book is understandable even for the uninitiated, and practical for anyone wanting to reduce their adverse impacts on the Earth.' John Davis, Earth First! Journal
